Making a life history book can be an enjoyable and empowering activity for a person with dementia which may enable greater interaction and open up communication between them and their carers, family and friends. A life history book promotes well-being, validation and celebration of a person, acts as a bridge to the past, and may be something that visitors can look through with a person, or it can be referred to by professionals to learn more about the person for which they are providing care.
